Mudeford Quay is a small beautiful corner of the Borough of Christchurch in Dorset, England. Situated at the entrance of Christchurch Harbour, Mudeford Quay benefits from spectacular views along the coast, over to the Needles on the Isle of Wight & back to Christchurch town. Mudeford Quay is made up of two areas, the Quay itself and Mudeford Spit, a natural sandbank which leads to Hengisbury Head all the way to Boscombe & Bournemouth. The Quay is a hub of activity with beautiful beaches, the lush grassed area ideal for picnics and enjoying the beautiful scenery and the Quayside itself which has a small shops, a pub, a fish stall and plenty of vantage points to watch the world go by.

A lovely place just to stroll around or sit and watch the boats. Very quiet on a weekday but I would imagine it's busy at weekends.

Pleasant little beach, easy coastal walk to Highcliff Castle. Only downside is very expensive parking. All the car parks nearby are the same high cost.

Beautiful area, with a lovely beach. Well worth a visit, and quieter then some of the more touristy areas, which is an added bonus.

Yes, but better buying some bacon at the supermarket as they charge a premium.
